that are covered, that's all states, municipalities, counties, city governments, in the last ten years there have only been 37 objections. in fact, today chief justice asked the solicitor general in 2005 the year before renewal how many submissions were made of voting changes? 3,700. how many objections were made? just one. the point of that is there is no longer systematic widespread discrimination and the record that congress established did not show that. >> woodruff: sherrilyn? >> that's too narrow a vision of what section 5 does. objections are when the community or jurisdiction proposes a plan, the justice department reviews it and determines that that plan is going to discriminate against minority voters. but there are other things that happen as well. sometimes the jurisdiction submits a plan, the justice department says "we think this plan is problematic, give us more information." and the jurisdiction at that point will decide to withdraw the plan. there are over 800 instances in the period that congress studied in which a jurisdiction did precisely that. >> woodruff: so what about that

the problem where the voting rights act is so powerful. police juries, city councils. >> at the same time the voting rights act was being challenged at the supreme court today, up on capitol hill the work of rosa parks was being honored. there it is. a statue of parks will sit in statutory hall. the first statue committed by congress in 140 years actually. president obama paid tribute to rosa parks. let's listen to the president. >> rosa parks' single act of disobedience laumpbled a movement. the tired feet of those who walked the dusty roads of montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blind. it is because of these men and women that i stand here today. >> well, her statue will be there forever now. >> it will be and it should be. we can't forget where we came from. we've been on a long struggle in this country to try and have racial equality, live up to our promise. the voting rights act is one of the key things that helped us get to where we are. let's not stop now. >> gene? >> i can't put it better than that. >> thanks for joining us. >>> coming up, look what's hap

about air travel. well actually you can see the top of the donald trump building in the city of chicago. because the clouds are so low and that is really causing havoc with air travel. jenna. jenna: you guys in chicago know snow better than we do on the east coast. >> reporter: a little bit. jenna: i will give you that credit, steve. we hear it is not just about the snow and amount of it but what it's like. tell us more about that. >> reporter: yeah and it's really, really wet. don't know what your snowball making history is like, jenna, if you make a snowball that easy that means the stuff is really wet. it is tough on people especially heart attack snow lifting it up. way tough on roofs. >> did you get it? >> reporter: reports of roofs collapsing particularly in missouri and kansas where both places have had two days of kind of drenching with this snow is really causing havoc and power lines. this heavy snow, it clings to tree branches. those branches droop, sometimes they fall. take the power lines out with them. that's a problem over in southeast michigan right now. so, if this is w

. it's really a tale of two cities, right? you've got the market feeling great from the get-go, mutual fund inflows. you feel the market wanted to go higher in january. it carried over a little bit into february. but there's been no follow-through really on the volume. and the other metrics you would look at. a little better on options. so it's interesting. now the question is, do things like sequestration and what's going on in italy right now throw us a few curveballs we don't really need right now. >> or maybe our volume levels are down for good. >> could be. >> people just say that's the wave. >> the investors are certainly turning over their portfolios less than they were. they're moving into higher asset classes now. maybe we have to get used to a new normal on volumes. >> derivatives strong, divide that up pretty good in the yields. that can work for everybody. >> i think the strategy in the merger really is a divide and conquer strategy. stapling on our interest rate complex to their commodity and energy franchise. gives us more time to focus on the nyse assets here. so i'm exc
oscar hammerstein once wrote. you have to be taught to hate. but the new york city school system might have a hard time teaching kids anything at all because governor andrew cuomo's administration just blocked $250 million from the schools after they missed a deadline for adopting a teacher's evaluation plan. wtf, new york. you're letting political squabbles over an evaluation deprive students of an education because their education hasn't properly been evaluated? that's not a policy. that's an ncf picture. if a student turns in an aslight late to school, they get punished but if a school's assignment is late, it is still the kids getting punished? you should be teaching george orwell. i like governor cuomo. he is, after all the leading contender to lose the 2016 nomination to hillary clinton. seriously, wtf new york. thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying.
